The first Italian company to specialize in glazed stoneware
Casalgrande Padana was founded in 1960. The first company in Italy to specialize in porcelain stoneware, it shot with incredible speed to the forefront of the international market. Casalgrande Padana currently employs 580 people, with the addition of the 550 of the controlled Nuova Riwal, in its six high-tech facilities in the heart of the world leading ceramics district, covering a total area of almost 700.000 square metres. Four decades of constant growth in sales and production are the tangible proof of Casalgrande Padana skill at responding to market changes and trends with exceptional innovation and quality in universal tiles, for floor and wall coverings, heavy-traffic environments, residential areas, service and industriaI buildings. Approximately 80% of Casalgrande Padana’s production is currently devoted to unglazed porcelain stoneware, a highperforming versatile material with excellent technical characteristics and superior aesthetic quality. Casalgrande Padana was an internationally forerunner in developing this special kind of finish, playing an important role in the material proving suitable to a wide range of architectural uses.
Granitogres can be used both for floors and wall coverings. It is perfect for places with heavy traffic and physical/chemical stress as well as residential architecture (particularly when using the finest of our series) where the strength of the material is matched beautifully by great aesthetic sophistication.
Granitogres Rusticato Line
It includes a variety of fully vitrified porcelain stoneware types, all of which share a warm, rustic look. The tiles are highly resistant to wear, chemicals, stains, frost as well as to physical and mechanical stresses. The slightly textured surface reduces slipperiness when wet and makes it suitable for outdoor application as well.
Pietre Native Line
The Pietre Native line bespeaks the levels of perfection that Casalgrande Padana has achieved in advanced production technologies and pairing them with the pursuit of absolute aesthetic refinement.
Original designs, optimal production techniques, high-quality materials and extremely high firing temperatures make the surface perfectly compact, impervious to physical and chemical stresses and very easy to clean.
The Granitoker line synthesizes the groundbreaking features of latest generation glazed porcelain stoneware. Obtained from sophisticated manufacturing processes and advanced research into the technological, chromatic and decorative aspects of the product, this ceramic material possesses a high technical performance and a unique appearance that lends itself to a multitude of different designer solutions. Dyed in the body with the same colors as the surface, this glazed porcelain stoneware is subjected to an unusual metallizing process in the finishing layer which reflects the textured feel and tonalities of the material from which it takes its name.
